Do you have a weird home in Detroit?
Do visitors who see your home ask a lot of questions? Do you have a strange collection dominating your decor? Do you live in a place that is traditionally not a house?
The Weird Homes Tour is coming to Detroit on August 25th and they are actively looking for a few more homes in Detroit. What could work? According to Weird Homes, they are looking for eccentric, funky, quirky, quirky, magical, and “weird” homes that can be opened up to visitors on a self-guided tour.
This is the first year the tour has been in Detroit. They started in Austin in 2014 and have since added New Orleans. They’ll be in Houston and Portland this year as well. For those who want to attend, tickets are $ 30 and VIP tickets are $ 45. Ten percent of the gross ticket sales go to the United Community Housing Coalition, which advocates affordable housing and keeps residents in their homes.
Founder David J. Neff told Curbed that they are looking for places with a rich history or architecture, for strange places that have been converted into houses, or for houses with strange themes. Many of the houses that were used in the past have been home to artists and creatives. He sees this as an opportunity to highlight design and to encourage the creativity of the visitors. “Maybe you go on the tour and come home and do something other than the house.”
He notes that shiplap and farm sinks are so often featured on TV shows at home. “We want to fight this trend. People come to our tours to get inspiration – go home and paint a wall yellow instead of eggshell # 09864. “

We look forward to seeing what was discovered in Detroit, but we can’t imagine it could beat this one.
